Abia War­riors coach warns play­ers against com­pla­cency

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By David Ngobua

The Tech­ni­cal Ad­viser of Abia War­riors, Ab­dul Biffo has warned his play­ers against com­pla­cency as he said they should not be car­ried away by their re­cent ex­ploits against Lobi Stars.

Against all odds, Abia War­riors shocked Lobi Stars 4-2 in Makurdi to end their 80-game un­beaten run at home.

Ad­dress­ing the play­ers at the team’s ho­tel shortly af­ter the vic­tory, Biffo told the boys to con­sol­i­date on the achieve­ment by per­form­ing bet­ter in their sub­se­quent matches in­stead of think­ing they have ar­rived.

De­scrib­ing the away win as sweet, the former Niger Tor­na­does of Minna tac­ti­cian said the en­tire team was pushed to the wall af­ter three con­sec­u­tive goal­less draws in the league and had re­solved to start the resur­gence with the game in Makurdi.

“We thank the Almighty God for the vic­tory which has re­duced the pres­sure on us but we also have to note that we are still not com­pletely safe so we con­tinue to bat­tle.

“In­stead of cel­e­brat­ing the vic­tory too much, we should con­sol­i­date on it and try as much as pos­si­ble to do well in our sub­se­quent matches “, Biffo told his boys.

Re­spond­ing on be­half of his team mates, cap­tain of the team, Austin Obaroakpo said the achieve­ment against Lobi came as a re­sult of col­lec­tive ef­fort by all the stake­hold­ers.
